Construction Begins!!

29 August 2018 - 8:09am by Kelly Perry

At last!  Wednesday, August 29th, construction begins.  The first item on the agenda is partition installation, which separates the library from the areas under renovation.  It will be noisy and disruptive at times during the coming months.  We apologize in advance for the inconvenience.

With the recent abundance of overdoses witnessed in downtown New Haven this week, the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library would like to pass on some information with regards to synthetic cannabinoids (source:  The American Journal of Medicine. 2016. 129(3): 240-244).

Reno-relocation

9 August 2018 - 3:00pm by Kelly Perry

If you haven't stopped by the library recently you may notice that things are a bit...  different.  We have optimized the spaces that will not be part of the renovation project for your comfort and convenience. 

What does that mean for you?  Can you still access the all-important things the library offers, such as study materials, computers...  the bathrooms?  Of course you can! 

Furniture Moving

2 August 2018 - 11:29am by Kelly Perry

We will be moving furniture on Friday the 3rd, Monday the 6th, and Tuesday the 7th from 7:30am to 3pm.  The movers will be transferring furniture from all parts of the library as we wrap up our preparations for renovation.

Expect disruptions, possible room closures, and lots of activity during these times.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Noise Alert for Friday, July 13th and Saturday, July 14th

Basement stacks, where drilling will take place.

Workers will be in the library this afternoon and tomorrow to install additional electrical service in preparation for the renovation project.  This work will take place near the four pillars on the E-level next to the book stacks.  This work may be noisy and library users may want to seek other space in the library during this time.

The Betsey Cushing Study Rooms

3 July 2018 - 8:29am by Kelly Perry

As the countdown towards renovations ticks down, you unfortunately will no longer be able to reserve a study room in the basement of the library.  Because we know these study rooms will have to be closed in the very near future, we decided it was best to end the capability to reserve the rooms online now, since future reservations may end up having to be cancelled.

The good news is that the rooms are still available on a first come, first served basis, until such time where the area is closed off to all patrons because of renovations.
